After canceling upcoming concerts over over a health issue, Willie Nelson now plans to resume his tour.

The country star had announced on Wednesday that he needed to cancel his tour, citing a breathing problem.

In a subsequent post on his official Facebook page on Thursday, it was announced that Nelson was now resting and feeling better. He will resume his tour on September 6 in New Hampshire.

The 86-year-old singer had performed a show in Toledo, Ohio earlier this week, before announcing he was have difficulty breathing.

"I'm sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out. I'll be back," Nelson wrote in a tweet.

In addition to resuming his tour, Nelson will continue plans to perform at the Farm Aid concert September 21 with Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Bonnie Raitt, his publicist told Rolling Stone.

It's not the first time he's dealt a health challenge. In 2018, Nelson canceled a performance at the Outlaw Music Festival, then pulled some shows from his tour. In 2017, the altitude in Salt Lake City, Utah, forced him to halt a show.

"I am sorry to have to cut the SLC show short tonight," he wrote on Twitter. "The altitude got to me. I am feeling better now & headed for lower ground."
